Misconceptions abound when it comes to home fire sprinklers. Some are confused by the technology's operation, others about the installation cost. One approach safety advocates have taken in distinguishing fact from fiction is hosting local sprinkler summits, linking certain audiences with targeted information on this technology.
Missourian advocates are no exception. On March 22, the Missouri Fire Sprinkler Coalition is hosting its third annual Missouri Sprinkler Summit, aimed at increasing awareness and dispelling myths surrounding this technology. Presenters include:
- a local homebuilder's perspective on installing home fire sprinklers
- an NFPA expert detailing sprinkler installation and design
- a local resident impacted by a home fire
A live burn/fire sprinkler demonstration will also take place. Early registration ticket prices are $40. For more details or to register for this important event, visit the registration page.
